Hooray for Friday!

I met the challenge of getting destroyed last night.  Here's the strange thing:  I find it so interesting that i can get tanked from a 12 pack or be completely sober after drinking one.  It's all in the hips, baby. I chatted up some friends and chatted it up in chat and chatted it up with an also-schnookered Shan.  All in all, it was a good night. I was a little groggy this morning but nothing bad.  Luckily *I* wasn't drinking tequila, like some people. I had a bacon cheeseburger for breakfast, which improved my mood immensely and, since it's Friday, I'm just a happy camper.

I wanted to give a shoutout to a new software I've been using.  It's called Desktop Rover. It's basically an automatic software KVM switch, minus the video.  This is how I use it:  At my job I use two different computers, each with their own keyboard, mouse and monitor.  Now, I want for each of them to use thier own monitor, but having two keyboards and mice is just a mess.  This program lets me use just one set of keyboard/mouse (computers must be networked, btw).  It works just like a dual monitor setup, so when I move the mouse off of one screen it goes onto the other screen and I can work on that computer.  It rules. I don't need to clutter up my desktop with extra peripherals that just get in the way of each other.  One note:  You still have to have a keyboard and mouse hooked up to the other computer, and you will need them for when you reboot, to log on.  For me this isn't an issue since I only reboot the client machine a few times a year and the keyboard and mouse are completely hidden between my flat panel monitors and the wall.

Happy Friday everyone!

From now on I'll send messages out (in a bottle, of course) before meetings are held.
